They actually have a peer-reviewed report, done by scientists and reviewed by people from the scientific community. Michael, you should read the report; it's legit, and it's not going anywhere. SF Parks and Recreation has pulled out of the seawall proposals because it is doing its homework.

As for false and misleading information, what about blatant denialism and myopia to facts. I keep throwing my hands up and wondering why anybody thinks it's a good idea to keep a golf course below sea level a stone's throw from the ocean. Frogs or not, someone has misled people into thinking it's a good idea. Please mislead me into thinking it's more reasonable.


I'd be leery of lending any weight to anything coming from CBD when you see how it tends to operate, and this article is a good example. False pictures and misleading information. Hmmm, sounds familiar.

Don't know how I come down on this issue, given the lack of information from the time the place was natural and the fact that the Fairway Park subdivision, plus other hardscaping on both sides of the highway, plus Highway 1, itself, are at least partially on top of natural habitat for the frogs and snakes.

But it can be said that a lawsuit brought by CBD, even without the larger, softer groups taking part in this one, is nothing to be pooh-poohed. CBD doesn't win 'em all, but its direct, forget-the-baloney, legal kick-ass approach has an excellent record of success against some formidable opponents. Calling them names is just water off a frog's [?] back to CBD. They stick to what they see as their principles.

The course doesn't cost the city money? The course needs a recycled-water plant to keep the grass almost green, while they use a massive pump to drain the freshwater off the course! And then people try to make both of those things sound like good ideas. How is that an economically viable situation?

Next they'll need a federal bailout for a bigger sea-golf wall and call it a tea party.

This is not just a WEI/CBD lawsuit; the National Parks Conservation Association, Surfrider Foundation, Sequoia Audubon Society, and Sierra Club are co-signatories, hardly a bunch of fringe groups. SF Park and Rec will have to take this lawsuit very seriously.

I've been saying it all along -- somebody wants a settlement to go away. Wild Extortion is a more fitting name, IMO.

This bogus lawsuit is brought to you by the same bunch who say the course is costing SF money. How much will it cost SF to defend this bogus lawsuit? Maybe they should think about that before costing the taxpayers more money!!!!!!!!
